This weekend I’m traveling to Boston to be a guest speaker at PirateCon 2016. My topic will be The Dark Web. The keynote speaker will be Aaron James, Massachusetts Pirate Party candidate for 27th Middlesex State Representative.
PirateCon is a yearly event held by the Massachusetts Pirate Party. I attended last year to do research for my book How Peer To Peer (P2P) File Sharing Is Shaping the Internet.
The Pirate Party was founded 10 years ago in Sweden and in a short time has become an international social and political movement. Sixty countries have a Pirate Party. The Pirate Party is the leading political party in Iceland. Eight states in the United States have a Pirate Party with the largest in Massachusetts.
